    Well, the 5200 beats the GMA900 in 915G hands down, due to the fact it has hardware Vertex units which the 915G lacks, I would say do not upgrade now to the PCI-E plateorm, not required yet

    Beside lacking hardware vertex shaders, the card lacks shader power ! And btw siddharth_menon CS:source refused to run GMA on dx9 switching back to dx 8.1. You might get those figures @ 800 rez with all effect turned down. The cheapest option for a PCi-E card is the Nvidia PCX 5300.

    Other cheap options include ATI radeon X300SE or X300 or X600

    I have the 915 series board and believe me games on this intel graphics 900gma are not too much to speak about . Only if you are willing to shell out on a PCI-express card that makes up-gradation worth it.
